Hi BillD -
I have had the same exact issue, and worse. This morning BT didn't even appear in my machine's hardware configuration. I had to get my husbands wired PC keyboard and mouse to shut down and restart my iMac twice before things would get recognized. It's horrible to have issues with even your most basic peripherals.
I suppose the wireless keyboard and mouse look cool, but I haven't found them to be very functional. I'm going to get the USB keyboard with the 10-key (looks just like the one that came with the iMac, but meant for people who actually use their machines for something more than email). I'm just irked that I have to.
Do you use rechargeable batteries? I find that they get drained really quickly. I'm tired of swapping them out all the time, and regular batteries are just not eco-friendly. I find this BT setup a little in conflict with Apple's 'green' marketing stuff.
